Bandpass Filters

Omega Optical’s (Brattleboro, VT) newly-launched RapidBand stock program provides fast delivery for hundreds of bandpass filter combinations in a standard 25 mm diameter ring that is only 3.5 mm thick. RapidBand filters are constructed by combining longpass and shortpass edges produced at 10 nm increments from 400 nm to 700 nm. These are assembled in a proprietary air-spaced ring designed to meet the size and quality requirements for many optical systems. Longpass and shortpass edge filters can also be ordered as RapidEdge filters, and are mounted in the same 25 mm ring.

System-on-Chip (SoC)

Ambarella (Santa Clara, CA) has announced the H2 and H12 camera System-on-Chips (SoCs) for sports and flying cameras. H2 offers 4K Ultra HD H.265/HEVC video at 60 frames per second and 4K AVC video at 120 frames per second. The H2’s 10-bit High Dynamic Range (HDR) video processing handles high-contrast scenes. H12 targets mainstream cameras and provides 4K Ultra HD HEVC video at 30 frames per second. Both technologies support live streaming of a low-delay, Full HD video stream for wireless monitoring and camera control.

GigE Cameras

Point Grey Research (Richmond, BC, Canada) has added a new 1.3 megapixel Sharp CCD model to its Blackfly family of GigE Vision™ cameras. The Blackfly BFLY-PGE-13H2 cameras, based on the Sharp RJ33J4CA3DE (mono) and RJ33J3CA3DE (color) 1/3" global shutter CCD sensors, stream 1288 × 964 resolution images at 30 fps. The Blackfly supports cable lengths of up to 100 meters using Gigabit Ethernet. Other capabilities include Power over Ethernet, temperature and status monitoring, infield updatable firmware, color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction, and pixel binning functionality.

Single Mode Fiber Coupler

A new opto-mechanical tool for coupling light into single-mode fiber optics from Siskiyou Corporation (Grants Pass, OR) offers a combination of high precision adjustment in a very compact package. Specifically, Siskiyou single-mode fiber couplers incorporate optics for focusing laser light into a FC connectorized single-mode fiber optic, together with tip/tilt mechanical adjustment to permit accurate positioning of the focused beam with respect to the fiber end.

Laser Power Detector

greenTEG (Zurich, Switzerland) has further miniaturized its laser power sensing technology for OEM applications. The gRAY B0.5-SC measures up to 500 mW on a surface of only 2x2 mm2. The detector is available as bare die component or mounted on a PCB for OEM system integration. With its small dimensions, the detector is especially suited for measurements inside the laser source.

Laser Micro-Machining Heads

Quantum Composers (Bozeman, MT) announced the addition of a full line of complete laser micromachining heads for semiconductor applications. These systems will feature an integrated DPSS Jewel ND:Yag laser, a uni-body all-in-one form factor, and a robust mechanical and optical design for manufacturing and repair applications. The three models of micro-machining heads are diverse enough to adjust to a variety of applications including: Ablation, semiconductor FA, TFT/LCD, CF and Cell/LCM, and OLED repair.

Area-Scan Cameras

Teledyne DALSA (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) has introduced nine new Genie Nano area cameras. Built around ON Semiconductor’s Python CMOS image sensors, the cameras include two inputs, two opto-coupled outputs, and a temperature range of -20 to 60°C. The 44 × 29 × 21 mm devices are available in three resolutions: 640 × 480 (running up to 850 frames per second in VGA), 800 × 600, and 1280 × 1024 pixels, in monochrome, color, and near infrared (NIR). Each camera weighs 46 grams.

Voice Coil Actuator

Voice Coil Actuator BEI Kimco (Vista, CA) has introduced a family of linear unhoused Voice Coil Actuators (VCAs) with aperture sizes of 15 mm, 20 mm, and 24.9 mm. The through-hole design allows an OEM assembly to pass directly through the middle of the actuator, resulting in reduced weight, fewer parts, and a more compact product overall. Auto focusing equipment to support lab equipment that use lasers, lights, wires, lenses, or tubes filled with gas or fluid can be inserted directly through the VCA aperture to save space in tight designs. With capabilities for low out-gassing, these VCAs are also well suited for optical instruments where it is important to prevent film from building up on lens or glass.
